The Boating Disease
Paperback | English
This light-hearted and totally unpolitically correct yarn will transport the reader under full sail from rural NZ, in the early nineteen fifties, to all of Godzone coastline and some of the more remote islands of the Pacific Ocean, with plenty of life’s ups and downs along the way.
Written by a typical Kiwi, low budget, do it yourself yachty, the story, besides a lot of other entertaining stuff, relates the coming into being of two large sailing vessels, necessary appendages to the author’s endless pursuit of the ultimate freedom. That being, the living on and cruising to, where ever the wind may blow, on your own self-sufficient go anywhere ship.
Certainly a well illustrated and re-readable addition to any boatie’s bookshelf.
